Hi i did have two marran batams with two hybirds a ranger and a amber star.they were fine.hybirds were 1year old and my battams came from my grandma who was to old to look after them anymore one mum and a 1 year old. No problems just put them together at night and the next day let them out and all was well. Till mr fox came! Now i just have hybirds as i found the batams went broody most of the summer and i wanted more eggs. Hope that helps
